On November 10, 2021, the Supreme Court of Texas issued its 44th Emergency Order, which removed the requirement for eviction petitions to state that the plaintiff has reviewed the information about the Texas Eviction Diversion Program. The 44th Emergency Order also revised the contents required to be included on eviction citations.
On November 3, 2021, the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs ("TDHCA") announced that it was closing the Texas Eviction Diversion Program to new applications because TDHCA has successfully paid or obligated all funds available to date.
On August 26, 2021, the CDC order temporarily halting evictions in counties with heightened levels of community transmission ended.
